Another lame excuse

Well, I'm sneaking away again, this time for a long weekend, so nothing here tomorrow or Friday. A smattering of links and a token kitten photo to get you through.
  • Anybody feeling jumpy about disasters might want to see this general preparedness guide or this short post on preparing for a pandemic (such as the avian flu).

  • Here's an excellent post from a while back on rape as a hate crime, and specifically how it represents a dead weight on the potential freedom of wome (because they are expected to live in a smaller and smaller world in order to avoid potential assault).
    (via Medley)

  • Here's another excellent essay, providing evidence that most women don't have abortions for selfish reasons, but to allow them to keep their current families and responsibilities afloat.
    (via Bitch, PhD)

  • It turns out that gossip may serve a purpose, namely clarifying and reinforcing social norms and expectations.
    (via Follow Me Here)

  • Make your own magazine cover, out of a photo on FlickR and any amount of silliness. The applications of this seem endless...
    (via kottke)

  • A Last Supper lunchbox. No, really.
    (via Above Average Jane)

  • Also from the land of the bizarre, witness the World Beard and Moustache Championships. help!
    (via Blinq)

  • And finally, see the art of pencil chewing carving taken to new heights of artistry at this pencil carving site.
